Okay, so here\'s the sitch. My friend lives here and it sucksss. Like, the bathroom is so disgusting I can hardly stand to use it (and I\'ve squatted over holes in the ground in third world countries). Sorry I got distracted. So my friend is financially independent- no familial support whatsoever. And she didn\'t pay her whole utility bill last month. (Not sure if it was more than usual or she couldn\'t afford to pay the whole thing??) So because of this $5-$10, she was getting charged 5 dollars a day, unwittingly, for 38 days. And when we went in just now to talk to the staff about it. This woman we talked to about it was unnecessarily cruel. Like, didn\'t give a crap that my friend has $7 in her bank account. Didn\'t care that they had the wrong email address on file and my friend didn\'t even know she had underpaid. She was fully compassionless. So thank heavens that her boss was in the room to say, \"Just knock those fees down to twenty bucks.\" Bless you, kind man. And to Miss Pink Shirt White Jeans, you should be ashamed of yourself. Do better.

I rented from fall 2018 through summer 2019.

I was here 2013-2014. The management is quick on repairs. parking sucks if you don't get one of the 20 passes they offer for underneath.

They will rape your wallet on utilities. I averaged $45 per month alone, meaning each of my roomates also shelled out $45. There is no way that utilities cost that much in Provo. They also don't tell you upfront that you wont get all your deposit back. apartments are what you would expect for 30 year old apartments

I rented from fall 10 through winter 11.

The only thing Southridge has going for it is its location. Parking, since this complex only has technically 1/4 of parking spots for all the tenants who "could" have a car, some tenants use the visitor parking lot because everyone else in the complex has to park on the street, (to compete with all the houses across the street, AND the other apartment complex on the other side of Southridge that also has crappy parking [surprise, its the same Company that rents the apartments]).

If you want to experience a really ghetto complex and pay a lot for it then this is the place for you! "YOU SHOULD RENT HERE" - The Management.

This is the crappiest apartment I could imagine living in. My roommate and I came here to be close to campus and have a chill, cheap complex to live in. The apartment is tiny and is falling apart. Maintenance typically does simple patch jobs rather than fixing problems. Our toilet randomly runs and although maintenance came to "fix it," it's still running. Maintenance are very nice, but they play their music quite loudly when they work which disturbs people who are still sleeping or want some quiet. Management is an absolute nightmare to deal with. Our manager is nice enough, but she is completely useless. Our apartment is above the hot tub and people are there hours past the posted usage times, and despite numerous complaints from multiple tenants, she has not done a single thing to fix the issue. The lock on the hot tub gate is broken and people from other complexes come use our facilities which just goes to show that they have no control over the complex or the satisfaction of their tenants. The laundry facilities are overpriced and usually have several machines out of order. Despite the fact that this is a single housing complex, there are currently a few married couples living here which is a complete lack of regard for BYU housing policy. The walls and windows are thin and poorly insulated and you can hear everything that goes on outside and in the hallways (and it drives up your utilities). Utilities are very expensive for such a small living space. We typically pay about $50 per person in our apartment. The kitchen has almost no counter space and has smaller-sized appliances, which we did know going in, but it is still inconvenient. There is no "deep clean" between tenants, so the apartments are in disrepair and are not checked up on. Several other tenants have found mice and black mold in their apartments. The upper management is as unhelpful as the manager is. We just got Google Fiber installed, which is great, but they are keeping their old internet provider and requiring all tenants to pay for that internet whether they use it or not. I would not recommend this apartment to anyone.

The only thing I really like about this apartment complex is its proximity to campus, which I love.

I lived here from August 2013 to April 2014.

Okay so the price looks cheap, but then they slap 50$ of utilities on you. The apartments have zero insulation so during winter if you keep your heat over 65 degrees prepare for more than 50$ a month. Quality is low, but for the price i could live somewhere cheaper and have the same quality. I wouldn't really recommend this place.

If you don't pay for a parking spot, you're basically screwed. If people invite friends over, and they take the street, you have to park a block or two away. No thats not bad, but when its snowing outside and you have groceries, you'll be thinking twice.

The quality is pretty poor. We have to swing the door shut to get it to close, and girls can't open the door. (Thats THE WORST) Our dishwasher leaks. Other than that, you pay for what you get.

I actually rented from fall of 13 to winter of 14. Im still here but don't want to be.

I love living here! It is one of the best complexes at BYU! The ward is really social and down to earth! Everyone in the complex is very friendly and nice! The apartments are great! Kitchens are kind of small and parking is tight if you have a car. You should definitely live here!
